I am 25 years old and am a working professionel. My skin gets bruises very easily. I did not care about them for long everytime trying to tell myself that I might have hurt somewhere and I didn't remember. But off late, as it has become too often, I am doubting something more serious. I visited a general physician couple of weeks back, but after examining me he asked if I have any other symptoms like fever, headache, sweating etc. I do not have any such symptoms, he could not conclude anything. At the time of that visit, I had a bruise on my arm. It disappeared slowly after two weeks. But now there are three bruises again, on the same arm a little above and two on my leg. I have no idea who to consult. I have no other medical complications except ovarian cysts. That is also dormant now and is currently not causing any complications. Anyone with similar problem or any knowledge about this, please respond.

Many Thanks!!!
